    Summary

    When Sherlock Holmes was 26, he came across a game in a back alley. It was not the kind of game you wanted to stumble into. It was the great game, played by Them. They'd declared him a discard, and tossed him off the board.

    Summary

    The comet, when it came, was a streak of light against the dark sky. You would hardly have seen it from inside a city, even if I'd known when and where to look before I met Them.

    Very shortly Jamie realized something wonderful: it seemed that nobody in at Sunnydale High really cared if you had any documentation, or, in fact, if your parents existed at all.

    Summary

    Joris is the third main character introduced in Diana Wynne Jones's The Homeward Bounders. He is a highly capable apprentice demon hunter. He is also a slave.

    These are two stories about his early life: how his family sold him into slavery when he was seven years old, and how he came to meet Konstam Khan, his teacher, owner, and personal hero.

    ETA: Now with a tiny bonus followup ficlet about Joris's early days as an apprentice demon hunter!

      Bookmark Notes:

      This does a lovely job of capturing the flavour of the end of the novel, the victory that comes at an immense personal cost, and it adds a plausible, in character, scene to the world. And the writing is lovely and transparent.
